The Roku and the VCR are completely separate and connect to different inputs on your TV.  They really have nothing to do with each other.  Try changing your TV's source or input until the VCR shows up.

Hooked my VCR up direct to TV via Coxial Cable. When I click on VCR nothing happens. On old TV hooked up red, white and Yellow. There is no place for RED, White, and Yellow to hook intoTV.

What do you mean by "click on VCR"?  If you connected it via coax cable you have to set your TV's channel to 3 or 4.  You may have rescan your channels if you didn't add them when you first set up the TV.
